Question about Microsoft Flight Simulator X for Windows

Microsoft Flight Sim X Black Screen

I am trying to help my soon to be father in law who only plays this game. He has just purchased a hp and has been upgrading it so his game will perform the best it can, he just upped his ram to 6gig and just installed geforce 9800gt. The drivers that were sent with the card said that they were not compatible. I d/l the newest driver from invidia with no change. When the game is loaded it works fine all the way up to playing then nothing but black screen and audio, though when you go to exit, this exit screen has no problems coming up.

    My father in law called me back, he was planning on uninstalling all
    addons and such associated with the game and when he uninstalled the
    most recent, service pack 2, it worked fine. Although, i did suggest
    that he install the latest direct x, and check its drivers.

There may be a power issue with this card. make sure your power supply can handle the cards demands. also. if your using vista, you may want to switch to xp. i would update my direct x drivers as well.

My flight sim will only open in small screen. how do i get it to open full screen


Try pressing (alt) + (enter).
If that dosen't work go to options and go to graphics, you will most likely find a box called fullscreen. If not then just adjust the resolution to wathever you have on your screen.

I have Windows 7 and MS Flight Sim X - what is the best joystick for this combination?


Really, that is completely up to the user. I have the Thrustmaster T-Flight HOTAS joystick, and I like that. There are many joysticks out there that offer many different features as well as coming with rudder pedals as well. Really, the biggest factor on deciding comes down to how light you would like your wallet to be after purchase! :)

I cannot create a flight on fs2004.when ever i go to fs2004 the system will shut down or go blank.


first all have you added any type of addon's like new airplanes
or scenery if you have then something there may be cousing your problem. if its an airplane go back remove that airplane. and try again
if all this fails you can reset flight sim 2004
go to Start then program files then microsoft games there you see microsoft flight simulator 2004 click on that then another box open up you see troubleshooting you notice in there rest to defaults
do not use this unless you wont reset it all to defaults settings. if this does not cure the problem then a reinstall of flight sim is needed. if you need any more help please ask

No force feedback only with Flight Sim. 2004


O-the sweet feel of a Microsoft Sidewinder Force Feedback lets see if I can be of some help. there could be any number of things going on but I'm going to give this a try. have you checked the settings in Flight Simulator 2004 seems to me that I remember a check box that said disable force feedback make sure that is unchecked. also in the settings for your controller there is a box that says enable force feedback make sure that is checked. then make sure if you are using a firewall like zone alarm you are in gaming mode because this used to give me major headaches with my system to the point I had to detach from the internet and shut down my firewall to play my games. if this doesn't work you may have to reinstall the drivers for the sidewinder this is the last easy option and it should repair any broke links and reset itself into your system. Please let me know how this helped if you need more Ideas just contact me.

Flight Sim X fails to load at statup


Check your video card and its drivers are up to date and not corrupted. Might be worth downloading new drivers. Basically after the menu screen the sim enters Direct3D mode and if there is a video driver problem, this is where it will pop up and start causing problems.
